Keeping customer plant and equipment operating efficiently is the central mission of the Inenco Group of businesses
The idea that an organisation can consistently exceed customer expectations was first seeded in an Inenco Group bearings business dating back to the 1950s. From this seed has grown a comprehensive group of industry-focused companies that sustain the passion and ability to deliver high customer value. Inenco Group is the entity which reinforces and grows the collective capability of these businesses.
Our customer value philosophy has firmly established the Inenco Group of companies as the best-option providers of engineered products and related services for industry in Australia and New Zealand – across our product portfolio. Further, this footprint is rapidly expanding into Asia through an Inenco Group business.
From a market standpoint, the Inenco Group of companies sit apart from comparative competitors because of our collective technical know-how combined with customer centricity. As a result our customer base is deep, extensive and solid.
Our core product lines embrace bearings, power transmission, sealing, fasteners, driveshafts, drives and motors, belting, fluid power, engineering services, lifting and safety equipment, tools and maintenance products. Adding in extensions and related products, the number of stocked lines exceeds 350,000 – equating to a presence in almost all industrial and trade sectors from agriculture and automotive to mining and transport in Australia.
We employ around 1700 people across more than 20 companies, with over 160 branches providing local service where and when it’s needed. To drive our customer value philosophy further and manage growth effectively, Inenco Group is supporting the customer value zones of our sales and service operations through centralised non-customer facing functions.
However, we don’t rest on our laurels. Continuous improvement and sustainable growth are two key Inenco Group strategic objectives. These are being driven by Inenco Group’s long term investment in people, systems, processes and new growth opportunities – kept in balance with the needs of customers.
Keeping customer plant and equipment operating efficiently is the central mission of the Inenco Group of businesses. We are guided by five core values:
We care for our environment and work collaboratively with all stakeholders: people, customer, suppliers and the wider community.
We embrace diversity and help our people to grow through leadership, learning and a commitment to continuous improvement.
We focus on safe work practices and act safely all the time.
We are ethical and honest and can be relied on to do what we say we will do.
The foundation of our customer service is to be Responsive, Efficient, Local with a Yes Can Do mindset. Simply stated, ‘RELY on us’.
The operating companies within the Inenco Group trace their heritage back to 1954 when the father-son partnership of JJ Martin-Weber & RJ Martin-Weber (OA) created Consolidated Bearing Company (CBC). The next major milestone occurred in 1984 when a well-established operation, Bearing Service Pty Ltd (BSC), a company established in 1924, was purchased by the Martin-Weber family.
In 2002 Fasteners Australia and Hardy Spicer were acquired and in 2003 a major growth phase went into full swing when Rolling Bearings, Glade Manufacturing and NAK joined the Group. Growth through strategic acquisitions continues today.
In March 2017, Inenco Group entered a strategic partnership with Genuine Parts Company’s (GPC) subsidiary, Motion Industries, with a 35
per cent shareholding. The partnership combined Inenco’s market-leading technical knowledge and customer focus with Motion Industries’ international and operating expertise.
Inenco and GPC’s strategic partnership evolved to a complete acquisition on July 1 2019. This ended the Martin-Weber family’s 65 years as sole shareholders and Inenco Group is now wholly owned by GPC.
